    Just a note to add to this - I believe Elf NFP gear oil will be okay to use with bronze bearings as it is designed specifically for use in gearboxes with bronze synchroniser rings. I know this because my car is one of those ;)

    While oil may be attractive due to its dampening properties, I have found that white lithium grease works exceptionally well on my old Thorens TD124.

    Kudos to your well written and researched article.
